Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win

I've never boarded the anti-Ash-Splash bandwagon, however what I do dislike about his version is he always bottles it. He flies in with his arms outstretched, then drops his knee first to take the weight of his fall. Ruins the aesthetic.

Hooper's at 2:55 - now THAT is how to swan dive. Totally commits to it, got huge air, he was practically doing front crawl in mid-air at one point, like the opening credits of Bananaman, then nailed the landing. Wonderful execution. that for me is the difference.

Springboks brush aside Welsh challenge with convincing win in Durban

"Out-do what they can do. Out-jump them, out-scrum them, out-ruck them, out-drive them, out-tackle them. Until they're fucking sick of it".

England impress with big midweek win against the Crusaders

I like your thinking 10 and I wouldn't put it past Mr Lancaster, whose tactical nous impresses more and more, to hatch such a plan. We saw what happened to New Zealand in 2007 when they found themselves without a proper Plan B when Dan Carter's leg played up. Either way,

I'm looking forward to seeing how this team goes tomorrow - on paper it looks like there should be some aesthetically-pleasing rugby played. If New Zealand intensity allows them to, that is.

Good point.

Shouldn't the title be "Excellent try-saving tackle made by the American bloke"?

Would love to see Cipriani-Eastmond-Tuilagi combo.

I'm not sure that watching someone defend against Conrad Smith is a fair test - there's something about that bloke, looks unspectacular but he bewitches defenders somehow, a true expert at unlocking defences and creating stuff out of nothing.

Now THAT is how you lead with your elbow.

Agree with the commentator and majority on here. Incorrect decision.

I would suggest though that the Canada captain needs to learn to STFU when the ref is talking to him and his players.

Fiji score six tries in Pacific Nations Cup rout against Tonga

Sireli Bobo, very interesting. Bit of genius, bit of magic. Very nice, ja. Three cheers for Sireli Bobo.

It is ridiculous that he's so athletic at this age, almost rude - sprinting the entire length of the pitch and not having the good grace to collapse in a heap.
